Australia is a great country full of excellent fishing and holiday spots. Why not combine the two? Our last blog talked about a few amazing Aussie fishing spots, and this week we are featuring a few more.
Fishing in Western Australia
The famous Ningaloo Reef is an amazing area for fishing. It is home to hundreds of different fish species. Exmouth is just a short distance away and a nice place to holiday with plenty of holiday accommodation options including the local caravan park where you can stay awhile. Anywhere around the Exmouth region is a good place to throw in a line. Camp Range National Park lies along this piece of coastline and camping is allowed. You can even put your boat in from the beach at the National Park.
The whole of Northern Western Australia coastline presents great fishing opportunities. These areas are largely isolated which is probably part of the reason that the region is teeming with fish. The Dampier Archipelago is renowned for Red Emperor, Coral Trout, Spangled Emperor, Scarlet Sea Perch, Snapper and many more tasty fish species. Karratha has a number of accommodation options including parks for the caravan.
The South Coast of Victoria
Gippsland on Victoria’s South Coast has plenty of excellent fishing spots too, including the Lakes Entrance area. Lakes Entrance is a delightful little town and a nice spot to stay while you explore the diverse fishing spots around the place. This area is also home to the scenic Gippsland Lakes and you can catch Bream, Flathead, Trevally and other species here. You will find local fishing stores where you can get the good oil on the best spots to go.
New South Wales Fishing
South West Rocks is a lovely holiday spot and another great fishing location. It is situated approximately 450 kilometres north of Sydney and is a picturesque village. It’s a nice place to have a break as it’s not a tourist mecca and you will find it a quiet and friendly place to enjoy some time out.
Jindabyne is also popular for fishing during summer and you can catch Rainbow Trout, Brown Trout, Brook Trout and Atlantic Salmon. Streams run down from the Snowy Mountains, the air is clean and crisp and the surrounds are picture perfect, all adding up to a nice place to visit. Lake Jindabyne isn’t open for fishing during the winter season.
